If no one could sleep in your house last weekend, it’s because Target’s Holiday Toy Spectacular ad showed up with the Sunday paper.

This thing’s got 79 pages of discounted products arranged in such a way your children are likely to ask for at least one-third of the items in the book (non-scientific guess).

Sorry, parents.

But there’s a way to save even more on Target’s holiday toy deals. Each day until Christmas Eve, you can get 50% off the year’s hottest toys.

Download the Target Cartwheel app or head to the desktop site and check out the “Hot Gifts for Cool Kids” section between Nov. 1 and Dec. 24 for 50% off a different toy every day.

Visit every day to see each special, add it to your Cartwheel and scan your digital or printed barcode at checkout to get the discount.

Can’t handle the suspense? Haven’t made your shopping list for the holidays yet? Try not to stress — with a different deal each day, you’re almost guaranteed to score something good.

I guess it’s time to start listening to what the kids are asking for this year. Your watchful eye on Cartwheel could mean a few extra pennies in your pocket come Dec. 26.

Your Turn: Which toys do you hope are discounted on Cartwheel this holiday season?
